This is Superintendent Lawsky's last scheduled appearance before the Bitlicense comment period ends on the 21st of this month.

We will be there and will be live tweeting our thoughts on Twitter, @CoinPricesIO

It is important that the NYDFS gets this right, or the impact on Bitcoin innovation in New York could be disastrous. Bitcoin is a global phenomenon, and if regulations prove to be too strict, business and innovation will move out of New York to friendlier locales.

blockquote class=twitter-tweet data-partner=tweetdeckp2) If a href=https://twitter.com/hashtag/bitlicense?src=hash#bitlicense/a is too strict then easiest option for companies will be to move out of NY. a href=https://twitter.com/CardozoLaw@CardozoLaw/a a href=https://twitter.com/NYDFS@NYDFS/a a href=https://twitter.com/BenLawsky@BenLawsky/a a href=https://twitter.com/hashtag/Bitcoin?src=hash#Bitcoin/a a href=https://twitter.com/hashtag/btc?src=hash#btc/a/pmdash; CoinPrices.io (@CoinpricesIO) a href=https://twitter.com/CoinpricesIO/status/522174497534005249October 14, 2014/a/blockquote script async src=//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js charset=utf-8/script

blockquote class=twitter-tweet data-partner=tweetdeckp3) If US approaches a href=https://twitter.com/hashtag/bitcoin?src=hash#bitcoin/a in wrong way, they may lose role as financial capital of world. a href=https://twitter.com/CardozoLaw@CardozoLaw/a a href=https://twitter.com/BenLawsky@BenLawsky/a a href=https://twitter.com/NYDFS@NYDFS/a a href=https://twitter.com/hashtag/bitlicense?src=hash#bitlicense/a a href=https://twitter.com/hashtag/btc?src=hash#btc/a/pmdash; CoinPrices.io (@CoinpricesIO) a href=https://twitter.com/CoinpricesIO/status/522176327844368384October 15, 2014/a/blockquote script async src=//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js charset=utf-8/script

blockquote class=twitter-tweet data-partner=tweetdeckp1) a href=https://twitter.com/BenLawsky@BenLawsky/a of a href=https://twitter.com/NYDFS@NYDFS/a on a href=https://twitter.com/BloombergNews@BloombergNews/a says regulators have capability of regulating a href=https://twitter.com/hashtag/bitcoin?src=hash#bitcoin/a. a href=http://t.co/E62vQrR81thttp://t.co/E62vQrR81t/a a href=https://twitter.com/hashtag/btc?src=hash#btc/a a href=https://twitter.com/hashtag/bitlicense?src=hash#bitlicense/a/pmdash; CoinPrices.io (@CoinpricesIO) a href=https://twitter.com/CoinpricesIO/status/522414666388357121October 15, 2014/a/blockquote script async src=//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js charset=utf-8/script

blockquote class=twitter-tweet data-partner=tweetdeckp2) It is a href=https://twitter.com/BenLawsky@BenLawsky/a#39;s job to try and regulate a href=https://twitter.com/hashtag/bitcoin?src=hash#bitcoin/a. That being said, he seems to be underestimating decentralized nature of a href=https://twitter.com/hashtag/btc?src=hash#btc/a./pmdash; CoinPrices.io (@CoinpricesIO) a href=https://twitter.com/CoinpricesIO/status/522415037596835840October 15, 2014/a/blockquote script async src=//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js charset=utf-8/script

blockquote class=twitter-tweet data-partner=tweetdeckp3) A solid example is illegal online gambling. The only way regulators have been able to stop it is through use of financial blockades. a href=https://twitter.com/hashtag/btc?src=hash#btc/a/pmdash; CoinPrices.io (@CoinpricesIO) a href=https://twitter.com/CoinpricesIO/status/522415295122911232October 15, 2014/a/blockquote script async src=//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js charset=utf-8/script

blockquote class=twitter-tweet data-partner=tweetdeckp4) And if regulators main power is financial blockades. Decentralized financial systems weaken that power. a href=https://twitter.com/hashtag/btc?src=hash#btc/a a href=https://twitter.com/hashtag/bitcoin?src=hash#bitcoin/a a href=https://twitter.com/hashtag/bitlicense?src=hash#bitlicense/a a href=https://twitter.com/NYDFS@NYDFS/a/pmdash; CoinPrices.io (@CoinpricesIO) a href=https://twitter.com/CoinpricesIO/status/522415724846129152October 15, 2014/a/blockquote script async src=//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js charset=utf-8/script
